Potential storm could end California wildfire season early.

Good news, if true. We'll have to see. The last two winters have been almost nothing. This would be a big storm this early in the rainy season.

If a wet storm arrives as predicted, the National Weather Service's Climate Prediction Center said it could "quell ongoing wildfire activity, help improve drought conditions ... and replenish water resources throughout the West Coast."

It's difficult to nail down a forecast beyond seven days with accuracy, and this proved true earlier this month when a long-term forecast showed rain in the future, and in the end, there was mostly drizzle.

. . .

The forecast from the Climate Prediction Center, which provides long-term outlooks, said models are suggesting up to 2 inches of rain across three days and "possible near record breaking precipitation for late October."

Gass explained records wouldn't be broken across the region, but some localized spots could see record-breaking rain.

3. Definitely good news for NorCal

Won’t help our fire season down in SoCal. We were under a SCE public safety power shutoff on Monday but luckily the winds were mild. Looks like we’ll have another on Friday.
